Mothers always have a choice

mama 2018

It is a great day to be alive. I am so thankful to be the mother of our beautiful two children. My journey started later than others and at the perfect time. I had my first child at the age of 36.
I remember being unsure about bringing children into the world because I was afraid of what could happen to them. I saw danger instead of possibilities.  I was not even sure I could have children, yet I always wanted a boy and a girl.
I do not like living in fear, and years ago, I realized that I could not change something without belief and faith in myself.  I am no longer afraid because I stand in the power of shaping our children into courageous, loving, and powerful, and strong beings who can make positive impacts throughout their journey. I can help shape how they take care of their body, feel about themselves, and how they face their life experiences.
I am so thankful for my mother, Thelma Jones. She decided to leave a relationship that was not working. Raising children in an abusive home was not the answer. With three kids under the age of 5, a suitcase, and 4,000 in her pocket, we traveled from Memphis Tennessee to Illinois by a Greyhound bus in search for a better life.

There are no regrets when you believe that life is for you. Our life experiences are to make us better and to help direct our paths.
I am forever grateful for the principles that our mother taught us. I continue to keep our mother’s principles close to my heart. When I was unsure of my abilities to be the mother I wanted to be, I thought of my mother.  She did it. Why can’t I?  Our mother’s principles brought me peace of mind. Being a mother of purpose is not always easy. It helps to have guiding principles to stay focused.
Here are 10 of our mother’s many principles:
1. Give from the heart and expect nothing in return.
2. Keep on trucking no matter what lies ahead
3. Be grateful for what you have
4. Be bold -Ask for what you want.
5. Live another day-You never know what the next day will bring
6. Take care of yourself-There is only one you
7. No excuses-Work from the truth
8. If you are sorry, then stop the behavior
9. Listen more and talk less
10. Break the Cycle-Change what is not working
What principles did your mother teach you?
